Show Description

“Disco is not dead” is a departure from Haughery’s previous work, which focused on process and technique to reach predetermined outcomes. In this new body of work, the intent is to throw off those restrictions in order to realize a more unexpected result. Consisting of paintings and serigraph, expressive brushstrokes and vibrant color choices, viewers are invited to contemplate a sense of humor and a carefree interaction with reality.

Chris Haughery is an artist, whose work examines themes of process, memory and the mental patterns that dictate our interaction with reality. His work has been exhibited in the Philadelphia and Washington D.C. area, in group and solo exhibitions.

The event is also an open studio of the printmaking spaces of artists Bethany Hansen and Anthony Diehl, and of other artists’ studios at Edgewood Studios, one of the longest-running art studio spaces in Washington, DC.

DC Poster Project show opens July 29

The DC Poster Project has reached 40 different neighborhoods and locales. Time to show them all at once! The opening will be from 5–8pm on Saturday, July 29.

The event will also feature works of other Pleasant Plains Workshop artists Bethany Hansen and Chris Haughery, and other artists at Edgewood Studios will have their spaces open for visitors as well.

Call for community driven programs in Shaw:

Pleasant Plains Workshop seeks fun, creative and community-focused projects and programming to coincide with “What’s Going On: Voices of Shaw”, a public art project that examines and celebrates the micro-cultures of Shaw through the voices and diverse lens of the community.

The selected projects set within the public or shared spaces, should be community focused, site-specific and each will have an engagement element. Additionally, the activities should have a commonality of inclusion, sharing and social interaction.

Examples of programming include but are not limited to: walking tours (traditional or alternative), cooking classes/food events, performances (dance, theater, etc), panel discussions, fashion shows, dance parties, community meetings, cultural celebrations/shocases, and film screenings.

Selected programs will be awarded up to $250 / each.
